It's late. so this will probably be shorter than I could make it, but I will do my best in a short amount of time. My favorite shows are 2-13-70, 5-23-72, 8-6-74, 9-3-77....ait that will take too long....all of the alpine valley '89 run and pretty much all of may '77 and march '90. As far as favorite songs and their meaning to me.... do I have to pick the songs you picked? I'm a woman, so LLR is probably the one that's got the most personal meaning because of my first love in high school. he was the one who turned me onto the dead, and the words fit perfectly. he broke my heart. I had a friend in high school who died when we were in junior year, and everybody wrote to the dead and asked them to play ripple for an encore at the next show we'd all be at, but they played brokedown palace, so I cry when I listen to it because it's jeff's song. I could go on but I'm trying to make my point quick. I used to be a set I fan. you know like a typical girl, top 40's stuff, so the song had to begin and end. Well I slowly turned to a set II fan. I love when the transition is just right and it's almost hard for me to find when the new song starts. 5-19-77, wow! I like to collect shows that have little stories behind them or are different in some way.... the harley show 6-4-78 and 4-6-82, the other one only has the first verse, and Garcia goes into a truly exceptional morning dew. there are others, I'm saving time. My favorite version of the other one (another favorite song) is 1-22-78. I think I love it so much because the only word I could use to describe it, is that it gets weird in the middle, kind of like single notes, but then the boys bring it back around! love it! I am a huge brent head. My favorite run for him is alpine valley '89 and I've watched the DVD more times than I can count. The women are smarter and good lovin, him and garcia are swipping riffs back and forth, and jerry's just got this look on his face like he's having a good time and you could see he loved him like a little brother. I love shows with lots of stage banter and joking. I am a complete list fanatic, and if it's 5 mnutes between songs, I want to hear it, because I love it when you hear the crowd get nuts! My favorite show build up, for me personally, has got to be 9-14-88. hearing the crowd scream at tuning, all I ould think is yeah! I'm here, got tickets for 2 other nights, the jumping up and down and smiling so hard my face hurt, and let's go boys i'm ready! take me there!

anyway, this was not an answer to you in the least. I do not need you or anyone else to ever tell me if I am a deadhead or not.

your answer is this...
#1 I am a woman, and if you've ever had a woman in your life, that should be enough.

and #2 I very simply forgot for a minute that this isn't deadhook. my bad.

bye boys. you've all been fun. I mean that. sincerely.

Whoah wait you are leaving? Look you have an establishment here, and although there are some people that are troubled right now, they'll have to learn to deal with it, and improvise, just like garcia does when he plays lead.

I enjoyed your post. I wasn't asking for it, in the literal sense, but it let me know a lot about you.

All in all,

Please don't leave

WOW! Dancinbare, please stay. I'm buzzed and just skimmed the thread, but I get the idea yer splittin'. Don't. I read your last post and you know more than most of these clowns, which includes me.

Dire - Man, the details of the wreck. Brutal. I have had many wrecks like that and never broke a nail...that's the shits. The story renews my zest for keeping you entertained.

BTW -Jammed some '69 tonight from either Arbuth or Dire...totally rocked....thanks again...both of you.

Ah so you are on highflow, you night owl? Nobody is on the archive when I am (at night). Don't you live in California?
